Xylem Water Solutions: Making history today

Companies don’t become global players by accident.

At Xylem Water Solutions, more than a century of experience has resulted in a comprehensive range of premium products for the transport and treatment of water and wastewater. The company also maintains the industry’s most extensive sales and service organisations in some 140 countries–a “peace of mind” factor appreciated by customers. 

Xylem Water Solutions traces its beginnings to 1901 when a Swedish businessman bought a foundry in Lindås, Sweden. It provided the basis for a water pump business.

Today, the company has its main production plant in the very same Swedish community, along with plants in Asia and the Americas. We manufacture and market a comprehensive range of  pumps; units for primary, secondary and tertiary water treatment; and products for treating water through biological, filtering and disinfection processes.

This range of superior products and applications know-how provides customers with enhanced functionality in addressing water and wastewater issues.

With headquarters in Sweden, Xylem Water Solutions is one of four divisions of Xylem Inc. in White Plains, New York, all with a single focus on the water industry. 

Xylem Inc.
As a stand-alone company, we are a world leader in water technology, providing equipment and services for water and wastewater applications with a broad portfolio of products and services that address the full cycle of water — from collection, distribution and use to its return to the environment.
